Weekend Discoveries

This weekend was one that I wish I could hit the repeat button on. For starters, it actually felt like Spring around here which was reason enough to blow confetti in anybody and everybody's face that I came in contact with. Unfortunately I only experienced this experience in my head [and it was magical] but seriously, fist pounds Indiana for representin' for once. California what?

During the past three days I have come across a few things that I have dubbed "blog worthy" so like any good blogger would do, I shall now share them with you.

+ Bacon cheeseburgers, while a wee bit unhealthy, are the best thing to eat after a full day of shopping. Or after a full day of doing nothing. It really doesn't matter the timing at all now that I think about it. Just bacon cheeseburgers, forever and always, amen.


+ The "Songs to Sing in the Shower" playlist on Spotify is as good as it sounds. We're talking Ace of Base, Spice Girls, AND Outkast. I know, I peed my pants a little bit too.

+ This rug from Ikea is the most non-negotiable item I've bought in a few weeks.


+ Husbands don't argue you with you when you actually adhere to the spending limit they put you on when going away for the weekend with your mom and sister. I mean if I would have known this, I would have done it yeeeaaaaaaaaaaars ago ;)


+ Squirting Grapefruit oil into your water is pleasantly delicious. Even if you hate grapefruit as much as I do.

+ Shopping for hats to attend the Kentucky Derby in is as thrilling and intimidating as you may think it would be. BECAUSE WHAT IF SCOTT DISICK OR JESSICA SIMPSON IS THERE?! These are the thoughts that haunt excite me at night.


+ I wear that necklace up above every single day now. I can't help it. For a [much] closer look, here you go.

+ Bonfires, while fabulous, are a little bit scary when winds are over 400 mph. Unless you like ashes in your face, in which case bonfires are strictly fabulous.

+ A rum and diet without diet is really just rum.

+ Sunday evenings are made for eating popcorn on the couch and not for writing blog posts. time to make like a banana and split.

  1. The hubby and I just drove past the Kentucky Derby Stadium (arena? field? I don't know) a few days ago on our way back from our road trip to Nashville and North Carolina! Are you really going to attend? If so you must celebrity stalk and take as many photos as possible. :)

  2. I am envious of your weekend! Mine was spent doing laundry and other responsible adult-like things. All I know, is now you've inspired me to plant my butt on the sofa and eat popcorn with game of thrones :)

  4. There are no words for how jealous I am you're going to the Kentucky Derby! It's on the top of my bucket list- pure preppy heaven!

    Also, I would totally agree about my love/fear of bonfires. Usually I think they are fabulous, but once I got too close while wearing those sticky boob adhesive bra things and it started melting to my skin. Not my finest moment. ;)

  16. I am so happy we finally have spring-like weather after this crazy polar vortex we had. You were so in my neck of the woods (probably 15-20 mins). I haven't been to that restaurant yet, but with that drool worthy pic it's on my short list! I also think I need that ikea rug in my life!

  17. The most successful thing I did, with regards to shopping, was finding a husband who doesn't give me a spending limit. I'm the boss of my own money :)

  18. The Indiana weather being sunny and 70 definitely helped my post vacation blues! Curious, did you guys go to the Ohio or Illinois IKEA? The rug is fab...and so is that hat on you!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
